Who is Brett Spinks?
Spinks, who spent an entire season with South Fremantle after being drafted, made his AFL debut in 1994. He played 14 games in the home and away season as well as a qualifying final. For his performance against Fitzroy early in the season, which included 10 marks, he received a 1994 AFL Rising Star nomination. A heavily built key forward, he could only manage a further six games in his next three seasons but topped Perth's goal-kicking in 1997. At the end of the 1997 season he was traded to Geelong for Callum Chambers, the 13th selection in the draft.
He started well at Geelong in 1998, kicking 17 goals in his first four games, including a bag of six goals against Hawthorn at Kardinia Park. His eventual season tally of 35 goals were enough to share the club's goal-kicking honours with Ronnie Burns. Injuries kept him out of the seniors in 1999 and he wasn't able to work his way back into the AFL.
